How many times does it need to be said that Apple includes a headphone jack dongle. It might not be ideal for some people but it is still a headphone jack - it works as a headphone jack and does everything that a headphone jack is supposed to do. I have no problem with Apple dropping old technology, and in this case technology that was invented in something like the 1920s. What are you going to say when Samsung eventually drop the headphone jack, and they will!?
